In)civic

In(civic is a strategy game that aims to reflect the movements that a series of marginal groups are forced to carry out in order to survive in certain areas of Barcelona. Their interaction with groups that are devoted to repressing them conditions their survival in the city.

The book called Rules of the Game, which comes with the game, is a printed facsimile of the Civic Ordinance of Barcelona. The rules exhaustively regulate pedestrians' behaviour, criminalising the use of public space for beggary, offer and demand of sexual services, bodily needs, consumption of alcoholic beverages, sleeping, taking a chair onto the street, hanging clothes to dry on the balcony, or walking around shirtless.

Offences may be punished with fines of up to 3,000€. The rules, as well as those who impose them, will be the object of the game. The game has no rules. It merely offers a map and some pawns, a translation of public space and its users, and some dice. But it doesn't impose how these should be used. The players are free to reconsider or reinvent the rules.
